Meet Baby Garrett - What a cutie! One of our favorite images from the session. This little guy didn't want to miss a trick - he was already a month old and did not want to sleep for the newborn baby images! Mom brought in so many cute hat sets - this hat and tie looks super cute on him!

Sailing into the sunset . . .

The past six months have been quite busy with everything except for keeping up with my blog. I am so sorry for failing to keep it up. Sailing, kayaking, livethesource® and family have kept me pretty occupied. Here is a recent image taken at the Chart House in Annapolis as the Wednesday night sailboat race participants were returning to their docks - such a parade of vessels. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and happened to be at the right place at the right time. 

Ana Grace at Three!

Ana Grace at three - what a beautiful little girl. I love photographing children and it sure is a pleasure when you get to watch them grow over the years. I have been photographing her since she was a newborn and she always has been a great little subject.

The Security of His Rabbit Blankie . . .

This was a quiet moment during his session. He was in between outfit changes and he stood there with this precious face for only a second. I couldn't resist . . . it's images like this that speak to my heart! He has such BEAUTIFUL big brown eyes and the spunk of a one year old! But this moment melts my heart.

All grown up . . .

I have had the privilege of photographing Hannah & Brian since they were newborns. It has been a wonderful experience watching them grow and change over the years. Their mom is my biggest fan and I send out kudos to her!!! I love that she trusted me to capture her children through portraiture, each and every year. I look forward to seeing her "Vivienne" gallery in their new home. It is alway a thrill to see my work adorning the walls and rooms of the families I have gotten to know; not only as clients, but as friends.

Thanks Grace for your loyalty and commitment to Vivienne Photography . . . not only as a business relationship but as a friendship over these years. I really appreciate that you love my work and have shared it with many! I know you are looking forward to seeing some images on my site. . . ENJOY!! (((((HUGS))))

Bella at three years old. I have been photographing her since she was an infant and love watching her grow and change in her personality. Mom drives from Mt. Airey to Annapolis after them moving from this area . . . such loyalty and I appreciate it it VERY much. Here is one that they didn't order but I thought was nice.

Summer Fun!

Once again, it's that time of year . . . SUMMER! I just realized I haven't posted anything for a while. Spending too much time having fun sailing and kayaking and all the other summer activities!

Here is an image I thought was pretty at the marina we stayed out last week. Rock Hall is a nice little town to visit. The marina was beautiful and we look forward to going back this season.

Smiling Newborn at Vivienne Photography!

Here is the completed collage I did of the precious smiling newborn Emory. She was 7 days old here and as I was getting her posed for an image, she started smiling and I stopped what I was doing because this was a moment in time that I didn't want to miss! I will be seeing her next week for her next session (4 months) to continue in her Storybook Album. This moment of her new beginning only lasted a short time but will be enjoyed for many years to come in her Storybook Album . . . a gift from the present to take into the future. . . an heirloom to be enjoyed for many years to come.

Best Wishes Lauren!

What a fun session I had with a high school senior, Lauren. She was beautiful and looked like a beauty queen. I felt like I was photographing a Miss America contestant! Here is one that her mom loved. Best Wishes to you Lauren as you go into the next part of your journey! Enjoy every minute of it.

We just finished up her last session in her Storybook Album. It has been such a delight photographing her since her first newborn session. She is such an adorable and sweet little girl . . . it has always been such a pleasure capturing images that reflect her sweetness and innocence.

The hat was a gift to her from a relative and I am so glad the mom brought it in. She looks ready for a shopping adventure in her hat and coat. . . very stylist little girl. I look forward already to her 2-year old session!

Precious 7-day old Newborn at Vivienne Photography

I had to share this recent image of a 7-day old little girl. I was in the process of positioning her the way I wanted and before I could get her hands the way I wanted them, I noticed she started to smile. I stopped what I was trying to do and got behind my camera and got a few images of her smiling. She is my first newborn that I got a smile out of! I wish I had her positioned the way I wanted . . . but I'll take this expression any day! : )

Celebrating Taylor at Vivienne Photography

From the 100 Day Portrait Session to the most recent, it has been such a pleasure capturing images of this beautiful child. As our Celebrated child, Taylor will receive a complimentary session that will be good through October 2011 and a keepsake photo tin. I look forward to the 10th year of photographing her this year!

I know this little one has been waiting patiently to see his images on The Blog . . . so I decided to create a special collage for him with the baking series we did. He enjoyed this session and it was really fun for him. We did a chef theme for his older sister several years ago. Their dad is a chef and this theme works perfectly for this family. This series will be displayed in their kitchen, along with his sister's.

Thanks Grace for all the years of allowing me to photograph your children . . . it's been a pleasure and an honor to do so. I've enjoy watching them grow and the times we get to share. I look forward to seeing them in the coming year. Thanks for being my #1 fan!
